Well, I don't have to pay VAT, so my price is a little lower than the price most of you would get.
And I do look at this as the last PPC system I will be purchasing.
And short of trying to find a SAM460, I don't have any other options to use the new video card support (other than wait for an ISA shift - and I'm not that patient).
No hard feelings, I understend you perfectly. In my case 1k would be acceptable, so as you can see nostalgie has its price :)
No, I can understand the basic economic concerns involved in this purchase, when an 11,2 PowerMac would probably outperform the purchase of $2000 (or more) of new hardware.
Its part of what makes the entire OS4 proposition seem so untenable.
$2000 for an adequate system, or $500 for an inadequate compromise system versus $100< for an 11,2 PowerMac.
It IS time we moved to commodity hardware, because this custom stuff is a bad proposition.
I'm just looking at the purchase of an X5000 as an collectable example of our last PPC stuff, I wouldn't recommend the purchase to another person.
Its not rational.
